Biden to propose $2 trillion infrastructure, jobs plan funded by corporate tax hike

  Biden to propose $2 trillion infrastructure, jobs plan funded by corporate tax hike The White House is comparing President Joe Biden's infrastructure proposal to the construction of interstate highways and the Space Race.The White House is billing the proposal, dubbed the American Jobs Plan, as a domestic investment not seen in the U.S. since the construction of the interstate highways in the 1950s and the Space Race a decade later.

President Joe Biden inherited the most effective southern border policy from the Trump administration. All he had to do was continue the "remain in Mexico" policy, a strategy that was advantageous to southern border communities in the United States and Mexico and a bane to the cartels.

But border wall contracts were canceled as soon as Biden entered the White House. As a result, there are numerous areas where there is a literal open border. Arizona ranchers in Cochise County, Arizona, are reporting that illegal immigrants are entering their private properties in droves as U.S. Customs and Border Protection is rendered completely powerless. The asylum-seekers at the entry points are so numerous that the officials helming the stations do not have time to vet the background of most who are coming in.

Joe Biden’s Presidency Has Highlighted the Rifts in the American Catholic Church

  Joe Biden’s Presidency Has Highlighted the Rifts in the American Catholic Church While Biden’s personal faith can’t be untangled from his politics, he also advocates policies out of step with Catholic doctrine.While Biden’s faith is deeply felt, his election has exposed divisions at the highest levels of the Catholic Church. Within days of his victory, 10 of the nation’s most powerful bishops took the extraordinary step of launching a “working group” on how to approach a Catholic President like Joe Biden. The panel met twice over Zoom, in December and January.

The Biden administration is not opening the border out of empathy for illegal immigrants. Rather, this anti-security measure is being used as a distraction to mask senseless domestic policies and as a guaranteed demographic boost for the Democratic National Committee. Clearly, the Biden administration has no desire to end the border crisis.

First, the destruction of our southern border is a distraction tactic from abysmal domestic policies. Within two months, Biden managed to offend Canada and leave jobless thousands of workers by terminating the Keystone XL pipeline project. And who can ignore the $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief bill, of which only $850 billion is going to COVID-19-related initiatives? Not to be outdone by fiscal irresponsibility, H.R.1 is being pushed through Congress in a desperate attempt to tilt the scales in elections.

On Border Crisis, Joe Biden Wants it Both Ways With Donald Trump

  On Border Crisis, Joe Biden Wants it Both Ways With Donald Trump The president has said he wants to move on from talking about Donald Trump, though he and his administration have heaped blame on their predecessors for issues at the border.Biden's presidency began with a clear desire to move forward from Trump, swiftly rolling back via executive action many of his predecessor's policies. As he unraveled parts of Trump's legacy, Biden expressed a desire to also cut him from the political narrative.

These are just the appalling domestic policies. Biden’s foreign policy escapades are no better: Talk of reentering a flawed and anti-Semitic Iran nuclear deal, reinstating funding to the terrorist Palestinian Authority, and ignoring Uyghur genocide by China are just some of the highlights of this administration’s "accomplishments" in less than 100 days.

Second, the destruction of our southern border is a technique to gather more Democratic votes. The Left thrives on conflating illegal immigration with legal immigration, and legal immigrants are often angered over the way illegal immigrants skip the immigration line and are given economic aid from the government. Just recently, states from Vermont to Maryland announced economic relief for undocumented residents. Vermont shelled out $1,200 for adults and $500 for children.

While these incentives may buy votes, what the Left does not express is that illegal immigration negatively affects wages of both legal, low-income Hispanic immigrants and low-income, non-Hispanic residents in the U.S. As findings from a 2010 congressional hearing reveal: “Illegal immigration to the United States in recent decades has tended to depress both wages and employment rates for low-skilled American citizens, a disproportionate number of whom are black men. … Those panelists that found modest effects overall nonetheless found significant effects in industry sectors such as meatpacking and construction.”

In new memoir, Hunter Biden reframes some political scandals but omits others

  In new memoir, Hunter Biden reframes some political scandals but omits others After a year of withering attacks, Hunter Biden has emerged with a new memoir that seeks to reframe some of the scandals that nearly derailed his dad's presidential bid. In "Beautiful Things," out next week, Hunter Biden charts a life defined by tragedy, addiction and scandal -- all in the shadow of a doting and concerned father, Joe Biden, whose ascent to the White House came during some of his son's darkest moments.

During the Reagan years, Texas held a healthy Republican lead. The Texan border communities, with a high concentration of Hispanic legal residents, voted strongly for former President Donald Trump in 2020. Yet for every administration since Reagan, the political lead in that state lessened — and not by coincidence. Democrats are lax on illegal immigration, knowing that the beneficiaries of the anti-American policy will return the favor in votes. California used to be Republican. Look what happened to that state.

The Left does not aid immigrants from Cuba or Venezuela. It knows those future voters lean Republican.
